Put in new hard drive

Boot up from your Snow Leopard disk or Mac OSX restore disk

Format the drive to Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

Install OSX on the new drive

When it first boots up OSX will ask you want you want to do next, one of the options will be to restore your mac from a Time Machine back-up

If your TM disk is connected up you are good to go and everything is restored
